Reunited and it feels so good!
The couple, whose 13th wedding anniversary was in November, were photographed together during a fun family outing with their kids Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10, on Dec. 22 in New York City. Both were wearing their wedding bands.
The family-of-four started their day with lunch at Manhattan eatery Orso, after which they reportedly hit up the Broadway musical Motown and a showing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Together since 1999 and married since 2000, the 69-year-old Behind the Candelabra star and the 44-year-old Welsh actress announced this summer that they were “taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage.”
The A-list couple have been through a number of trying events in recent years, including Michael’s bout with stage IV throat cancer and subsequent chemotherapy, and Zeta-Jones’ ongoing treatment for bipolar disorder.
“Catherine went off the rails and talked about ending their relationship for good,” a source told the magazine. “But Michael gave her the space she needed in order to fight her demons and evaluate if she really wanted to save their relationship.
“He knew she would come back around.”
It appears the break was just what the pair needed, pals revealed.
“Catherine has gotten herself healthier than she’s been in a long time,” the close friend added. “They both look and feel better than they have in years, and they want to get back as a family unit.”
